Back in Mach of 2002, I went to my first Photoshop World conference. It was held at the San Diego Convention Center, and featured the best Photoshop Instructors on the planet. I spent two days learning things like Mastering Layers from Scott Kelby, Retouching for Photographer from Julieanne Kost, and Habits of Successful Users from Dave Cross.That weekend (yes it was on a weekend back then) gave me more motivation, more Photoshop skills and more desire to create than ever before. To sum up, it was a great weekend.

Since 2009 I have been honored to be a part of Photoshop World as an instructor teaching on such subjects as Concert Photography, Night and Low Light Photography, Night and Low Light Photoshop Techniques, Pet Photography and Exposure and Composition. It has been an amazing six years and in 2016 I will be back at Photoshop World teaching and all new and updated Concert Photography, and the basics of Night and Low Light Photography which will include a Photoshop tip or two.

You can find out more about Photoshop World at the Photoshop World Website HERE. This year the returning instructors include, Scott Kelby, Joe McNally, Moose Peterson, Glyn Dewis, Dave Cross, Lindsay Adler, and Tim Wallace. New instructors this time around include Dave Clayton, Kristina Sherk, Kaylee Greer, Stacy Pearsall and Justin Wojtczak. There are new classes like the 4 Steps to Meaningful Work with Daniel Gregory and Intro to InDesign with Dave Clayton. There are new pre-cons like the Live Bog shoot with Kaylee Greer and the Red Rock Landscape shoot with Moose Peterson. There new events like the Evening with Gregory Heisler and old favorites like the After Hours Party and Keynote Address.

Now for the best part…

I have two FULL CONFERENCE PASSES to give away so that you can join me in Las Vegas.

That’s right, I will be giving away two passes to Photoshop World, and it’s really easy to enter to win. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog entry on why you want to go to Photoshop world. There is a small catch, one of the passes is going to go to a someone who has never been to Photoshop World and the other is going to go to someone who has been before and really wants to go back. So please let me know if this will be your first time or if you are one of the thousands who have already been and want to come back.

A huge thanks to Dave Clayton for the banner design, you might want to check out his website and that Glyn Dewis chap as well to see what they are up to.
